2:00am
committee and i was not sure if this day was ever going to come but i run up and down this water front everyday and it didn't look like it was going to happen but it's going to happen and i want to thank everyone who worked really hard and i was down at pier 35 and saw the congestion and everything and saw the facility and the cruise companies that come here to a san francisco -- how can we not have a world class -- this is a world class city how can we not have a world class cruise term mal and i look forward to going with the maritime guys down to florida to meet the cruise companies and we want to double the amount of passengerrers coming down here and there is something like 200,000 people here that came to the port of fran and i can clearly see and use the -- to reach a half a million and i'm very supportive
2:01am
of this and like i said, i never thought this day would come but it's going to happen and i'm very supportive. >> okay search excited about the new cruise terminal but i don't know if questioner excited about the cost. definitely excited about the new cruise terminal. and just trying to understand the numbers and looking at the proms limits for phase two and the change between what was approved and what is being requested today is free much million? is 43 million and i know you discuss the may be 11 million? i don't know if we discussed the whole 43 million and where the costs are and why it's so much. okay. >> i'll take up the
2:02am
43.254 million is the estimate for the phase two budget. i think why the costs are so high, i would ask kim to give more details, i think that it's a combination of the large site, the cost of reconstruction, and the maritime improves required for the operation and then having many other parts including security a very robust security program, major public access improvemnt and is a two and-a-half acre park and it's all of those thing that get you a hundred and senior and 11 million-dollar project and so that is my answer for why it's so expensive. >> okay so am i reading this bronchbecause the request is for one 25 million. >> yes can you describe why it's more than the actual
2:03am
budget? yeah, when we came back i think last time we were up here in front of the port commission, one of the other projects came into be on our contract. that was the american's cup infrastructure improves on some of the other pier and is that is $14.7 million. so when we come back to talk about the increase for turner, we have to consider that it's on top of that 14 million although it's not for this project. so, there are contract gets increased because this amount is in there. >> okay so the change for the cruise terminal about the proposed 82 million but when we approved the 82 million didn't
2:04am
we take this into consideration? no phase two was really just an estimate at the time and so no work and other than the phase two --. >> so it was an estimate yeah and so other than the phase two it gets very complex and you have up with the project a very long time and the work and phase in phase one. design work included the phase two drawings because they were developed at the same time. so, in the phase two, we are not including the design fee for new drawings. . >> okay so the additional 40 is going towards.. ? issue wish i have had of
2:05am
the able -- page nine. four table a she is talking about the 39 tpt p.7 increase in turner's acts and the 49 million increase in d p contract and so 43 million total for the three contracts that has changed in the authorization. . okay so we are talk about the cruise terminal 37.000000 and so if you go back to table two on page four of your report, at the top, we have broken this down as best as we can by system. which gives you the total of
2:06am
$36 million. and then on top of that, there is a contingency of 10%. of such that is 3.6 million and so that should total up to 39-point p$.7 million did you take the plaza into consideration at all during phase one? no. so the table on phase one is who of approved by contract to date ask so since we have identified funding for phase one that is all that has been approved and so the table in page six and ask what the contracts need to change but but not necessarily what the estimates have changed by does that make sense? so we are always praying successfully that the park can be funded from the joe bonds and so we have never had approved expend tours
2:07am
accept for the money we spend designing it and working through the b.c. b d retirements for the permanent which were not cheap, that makes sense. we are trying we did a great job of giving everything that we know in the department but it gets confusing really fast. >> thank you and so for the design team contract and l b e goal of 15%,th that is now at 44.6% which, is absolutely wonderful but what dollar amount is that on is that on the 1.9? is that or the -- it's on the phase one dollar amount. which, is 9.9? >> and that is great. thank you. that is a wonderful wonderful achievementism have and then under of the c m g c contract. okay so c m g c is running a little bit behind our
2:08am
goal and we have got about 12 and-a-half% l b participation and this is based on invoices, provided to us which lag at least 30 days behind and the fun end of project had small specialties like structural steal as we move forward we are getting into less specialized work and so our estimate for november when we get the bills and and everything we make an official l b it should be about 18 perts p%. >> you answered my question, thank you. a lot of focus on that question. you are going to be happy happy happy at the end, right kim? and then i think most of my questions have been
2:09am
answered but one correct this if i'm on wrong but it looks like really the changes in both of the phase one budget and also, it was phase two, very little is actually due to change orders. is that correct? phase one is one our 10% change order allowance. >> okay that is impressive too. you were very lucky with the phase one timing and to move a couple items forward and phase two as you know the market is on fire. any other questions? this is great that you so much all in favor-aye. resolution 12 in this action, 129797 and 1298 have been approved. >> thank you. >> item 13 new business.
2:10am
any public comment on new business? anybody have a new business for me? yeah? no? real quickly i know it's been a long day madame chair on this cruise terminal it has already been out the operator r rfp it's out now and due early february, i think. so what happens is the port staff and maritime they interview the different operator and is then they come back here to the board with recommendation and so we will establish a selection and panel which will include some internal staff and a lot of sternal folks based on the score of of r f q's we will come up with a selection for oral interviews all of which is over seen by the human right commission and then formerlily to your point, we will come back to the commission with a recommendation for the highest
2:11am
ranked firm. >> okay what i would like if you could possibly bring back two names, i think that would be good and i would like to have them come so that the commissioners we can talk it hem and sometimes we give them one but i would like two operators that are good that we can talk too i would like to do that. okay hopefully we are going to have that many hopefully more i don't that is good i hope you have ten but when you make the recommendations i would like there to be two. >> okay i'm still holding my breath. will do is there any other new business ...? public comment is there any public comment? seeing none. to reconvene and close session.
2:12am
